Q & A with Dr. Graham
Q As a woman, how can I flourish with such pressure to be perfect?
A The world’s ideas about what a woman should be – physically perfect, entirely independent, at the top in her career – often leave women feeling frustrated, defeated, and depressed.
But God views the success of women very differently. In fact, He elevates, honors, and shows more respect for women than any feminist or psychologist.
I encourage you to study Proverbs 31:10-31, which celebrates godly women. And Joshua 1:8 says that when you meditate on and follow God’s Word, “then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” God loves you as you are and wants you to flourish!
Q What if I’m a mom and I need to work for a living?
A We live in a society in which many women are compelled to work, and many single mothers are the sole breadwinner. Whether you work or not, the Bible commands that your family and home be the first priority in your life. So if you’re married, love your husband and make your children a vital priority. Remember, God is your provider, so keep work in the right biblical perspective.
